X-Ray : Malunited # Shaft of femur M/3

𝙄𝙢𝙥𝙤𝙧𝙩𝙖𝙣𝙩 𝙋𝙤𝙞𝙣𝙩𝙨
1. Malunions of femoral shaft are not uncommon
2. Most often occurs after treatment with cast braces or treatment of unstable open # with small intramedullary nails
3. Almost all malunions of shaft show combined deformities of malrotation, angulation and shortening
4. Shortening more than 2.5 cm , malrotation of 10°-15° and angulation of 15° requires correction in active patients
5. The type of surgical procedure indicated for correction of malunion of the femur depends on the degree of deformity, the alignment of medullary canal and the location of deformity

Infantile Quadriceps Fibrosis

𝙄𝙢𝙥𝙤𝙧𝙩𝙖𝙣𝙩 𝙥𝙤𝙞𝙣𝙩𝙨
-Acquired extension of knee in children is the result of repeated intramuscular injections into thigh muscles
-In infancy this combined with poor nutrition and severe underlying disease leads to muscle necrosis followed by fibrosis and adhesion to underlying structures and covering deep fascia with failure of muscle development
-Physiotherapy and passive stretching is unlikely to lengthen the contracted tissues Surgical lengthening of the extension apparatus is always necessary which is achieved by lengthening the quadriceps tendon distally or by relcasing the shortened muscles from their proximal attachments

1. Bursae are sacs lined with membrane similar to synovium located over joints and bony prominences which function to reduce friction and protect delicate structures from pressure
2.Numerous bursae have been described in relation to hamstrings and medial gastrocnemius, the most important of which is situated between the medial head and semimembranosus muscle
3. These bursae often form a composite bursa designated the gastrocnemio-semi membranosus bursa which often communicate with the knee joint through an opening in the posterior capsule
4. It becomes inflammed especially in males who are active labourers such as game keepers, shepards and farmers
5. The bursa is superficially based and is attached to areolar tissue. Deeply it fuses intimately with semi membransus tendon
6. Important D/D include Hemangioma, neoplasms and popliteal cyst (Morant Bakers)
7. The treatment when the patient has symptoms is surgical excision of the sac.

𝙄𝙢𝙥𝙤𝙧𝙩𝙖𝙣𝙩 𝙋𝙤𝙞𝙣𝙩𝙨
1. Bursae are sacs lined with membrane similar to synovium located over joints and bone prominences to reduce friction and protect delicate structures from pressure
2. Prepatellar bursa is subcutaneous, present in 90% of people covering lower half of patella and upper half of patellar tendon
3. Chronic inflammation of their bursa occurs as a result of repeated trauma as in kneeling - eg housemaid, carpet layers
4. The walls becomes thickened and the interior is loculated by irregular adhesions and septa with occasional loose bodies
5. Important DD include jumper's knee and rarcly osteomyelitis and tuberculosis of patella
6. The treatment of acute bursitis is rest. The fluid may be aspirated and in small non infected bursitis l or 2ml of local hydrocortisone may be injected to relieve inflammation
7. Chronic inflammation requires complete excision of the sac through a transverse incision

X-ray (R) Knee : Rt Knee effusion with multiple loose bodies (intra-articular)

Treatment is surgical removal and subtotal synovectomy depending upon the cause

𝙄𝙢𝙥𝙤𝙧𝙩𝙖𝙣𝙩 𝙋𝙤𝙞𝙣𝙩𝙨
Intra-articular loose bodies may be derived from bone, cartilage or synovial membrane. They may be entirely free within the joint or they may retain a pedicle of soft tissue.

These X-rays show a displaced pathological fracture of the right shaft of the femur. An attempt
at reducing and splinting the fracture should be made under sedation. Adequate analgesia should be prescribed. Further X-rays of the entire femur will be required to look for further bone lesions prior to surgical fixation.Given the age of the patient, the underlying bone lesion is most likely a metastasis, with the two most likely primaries in a female being breast and lung cancer. The patient will require a full history and examination,
including a breast exam, routine bloods and a chest X-ray. Further imaging
will be guided by the above but will likely involve a CT for staging.


A 62 year old woman fell whilst shopping, injuring her right leg. She is very sore in the mid shaft of her right leg and unable to weight bear. She has been brought into emergency by ambulance.

This lateral X-ray shows a minimally displaced fracture at the base of the 5th metatarsal. This is in keeping with an avulsion fracture (at the peroneus brevis tendon insertion site).

It requires further assessment on formal foot X-rays. I would also like to assess the AP ankle X-ray
to complete my assessment of the
ankle. Treatment of this type of fracture usually involves fitting a walking boot and referring the patient to the fracture clinic.
